This page is to inform staff of what is expected of them and inform them of the abilities and procedures they will have at their disposal in order to better help players on the server. This will hopefully serve multiple purposes with one being that if all staff read and follow these procedures everyone should handle things the same making all treatment of players and handling of situations the same regardless of who is helping them. It will act as a reference for any staff member who might not be sure of a command and all its arguments or options or who doesnt remember all the specific details of a procedure. It will inform all new staff members of the abilities and commands that their position will grant them.
All staff are expected to act in a mature, friendly and helpful manner at all times when on the server or its satellite components like enjin, forums, discord, etc.
All staff are expected to read and reference this guide when helping players.
All staff are expected to keep all communications between staff completely confidential. Anything that staff is handling, discussing, changing, etc through Discord or ingame staff chat are not to be repeated or shared with any players unless they are an integral part of the situation. If a drama situation is being discussed only the parties directly involved would be informed of the outcome of a decision for resolution.
All staff are expected to either give assistance to any player who asks for it or refer that player to a higher position staff member who can better assist them with the situation.
All staff are expected to share important information about the server in the Discord staffchat. If you come across a situation that is out of the normal and are able to fix or resolve it, please post what the issue was and what the solution was so other staff may know what to do in case they come across the same situation.
All staff are expected to look to senior staff for advice or opinions for any situation they are not sure they know what to do with.
All staff are expected to never tell a player we cannot help them. Refer them to Owner if they think this is the case.
All staff are expected to encourage players to participate on the forums with suggestions / complaints unless the player is not interested in do so in which case they will accept and pass on the suggestion / complaint to an Admin or Owner.
General Rules by Subject:
Before making a comment ensure you are providing accurate information. Look through logs to check for player activity with [ /co l <user> a:chat t:7d ]for chat history and [ /co l <user> a:session ] for login times.
Make sure to always put your comments on the Admin Comments Section. Only Owner and Admin's will post in the Applicant Comments.
Under no circumstances should any information, opinions, or comments posted by staff in the Admin Comments Section be shared with anyone EVEN Staff.
This is a very important subject here for good cause. If certain things are not kept private it will very quickly lead to a situation running out of control or drama becoming very toxic and widespread. The following things should not be openly discussed or shared with anyone except current staff members:
Application Comments - Do Not share even among staff as Staff should not know what comments were on their own applications.
Staff Chatroom on Discord- Never Share with non-staff unless the information is also released publicly examples: upcoming event, new plugin fixes, etc.
In-game private messages between players and staff - Never share any information with non-staff that was in a private message even if it was between yourself and another player.
In-game punishments - Only admin's and Owner can disclose punishments to the general chat. Otherwise only the victims should be told what punishments or reprocussions were imposed on an offending player.
Player information- Player information including real names, addresses, locations, IP addresses, countries of origin, alt accounts, usernames on other services etc should NEVER be released distributed or otherwise given to anyone. All player personal information is to be kept private with NO EXCEPTION. Attempts to use staff ranks, commands or access to gather any personal information of players will be considered abuse of power even without distributing or using that information. If players decide to give out their own information or make it public that is there choice. If players dont want to disclose real names or locations etc they under no circumstance will be required to.
Staff Accountability- Staff and ex-staff are always held to a much higher standard than normal players. Staff who break the rules will receive much harsher punishment or banishment. With great power comes great responsibility (and greater punishment). Staff are required to know the server rules, standards and guidelines like the back of their hands and they inability to follow them will be considered malicious intentional acts against the server community or players involved. Dont let this deter you from doing your job as situations involving staff or ex-staff are investigated thoroughly and intensely before any action is taken.
